Safeguarding Your Eyesight with Protective Eyewear

Many of the emergency visits to ophthalmology offices near Chicago are the result of eye injuries. Power tools, lawn mowers, and sports activities are all common causes of serious eye trauma. When you watch this featured video, you’ll hear an ophthalmologist explain that about 90% of eye injuries could be prevented simply by wearing protective eyewear.

Talk to your eye doctor about the type of protective eyewear that’s right for you. Some types are designed specifically to protect the eyes of athletes, while others are better suited to yard work or a construction site. If you typically wear eyeglasses instead of contact lenses, you can get your protective goggles customized to your vision prescription for greater convenience.
